Django Pin Passcode Example

This is a simple app that adds a site wide pin-passcode for quick authentication. I wrote this originally for my personal motivation tracker chin up so I could quickly login from my phone.

You enter a PIN passcode (using 0-9 and #, can use numpad) until the correct pin is entered, then:

  • If PIN_PASSCODE_USERNAME is set, you will be logged in as this user

  • Otherwise, a session variable will be set and you will be able to browse the site


pip install django-pin-passcode





# user to sign in as, omit this option to use a session variable instead
# PIN_PASSCODE_USERNAME = 'eric' # uncomment this to login as "eric" after valid pin code is entered

# the passcode required to login as the above user, using 0-9 and '#'
# If no PIN is set, pin passcode will allow anyone to access the site 

# IP addresses to give access to automatically

urlpatterns = patterns(
    url(r'^', include('pin_passcode.urls')),


pip install -r requirements.txt


Release notes


  • Empty PIN_PASSCODE_PIN disables pin passcode
